[BLOGIT]Just Bought Me First Books....

Recommended Posts

So having finally said out loud to myself that yes, I think I am a Pagan, that it's something I want to know a bit more about so I can work out where the bloomin' heck this is going to take me (seeing as how it's taken me 42 years to finally work out that maybe this is something I need to pay a bit more attention to! :) ) and having had a good trawl through the Starters Orders (which did fry my brain a bit I must admit - probably better to read a bit at a time not try and digest the whole thing in one sitting!! Guess it's the enthusiasm of being new to something!


Anyway, Starters Orders (the basics) is a FAB post and it made me think about the bits that really interest me right here, right now so I've ordered meself a book on crystals, a book on herbs and healing and (because it was second hand so very VERY cheap, a book for the solitary witch. Reckon that'll be enough to keep me going for a while.


Am SO glad this forum is here, I've found more information, including idiots guides, in one place here than anywhere else :P

      I’ve posted a link (in links) to a BBC article in today’s news just to illustrate a bit of the colourful side of Paganism.  Perhaps it will do something to balance my prosaic take on the subject. i know little of Witchcraft but I enjoyed the article and like her approach.

      👍 It's as good a position as any and better than quite a few.

      Yes, it was in Nettle's "Who are your deities?" thread. I said "I seem to have become an atheist. That was never my plan, but here I am." Veggiedancer later said it better than me - "I don’t exactly believe in deities as such. I think they come from  our minds. Archetypes, ways of identify or characterising the spirit/ magic/ life or whatever it is we sense around us. Ways our minds try to explain the unexplainable to us???"

      I’m probably second guessing Nettle wrongly but it wasn’t all that long ago that you would have read posts about alters, magic, Shamanism, spells etc. I think it was either Teatimetreat or Drachenfach that had a hex on her handbag and her car.  When the car was stolen it crashed and the thief was caught. I agree and would very much like to see more of the colourful side of Paganism back here.  Quite right Ellinas.  I do not understand how anyone can claim to be Pantheist (or even pantheist) and atheist at the same time even though the most prominent Pantheists do exactly that.  As I’ve said elsewhere: why can’t they call themselves Panists.  The prefix “pan” means everything and everywhere as in “pandemic”.  The god’s name arose from the adjective so it wouldn’t necessarily mean a devotee of Pan. pee ess - it may be worth mentioning that there are a vast number of belief groups under the umbrella word Paganism.  Druids Witches, Polytheist and Shaman are only a small part of what the greater picture of Paganism depicts. Dunno and don’t care are probably the biggest groups.

      All the above, plus the impression of a preponderance of atheism is currently, as well as historically, inaccurate.  Certainly, I am no atheist.  I believe MS rejects the term as applicable to himself.  Stonehugger, I think, recently said he had headed in that direction, but I've not seen the other resident atheists for a while. However, our ideas of deity are not the same, necessarily.
